Youth

Our youth are making a difference for Christ!


The purpose of the Lighthouse Baptist Church youth ministry is to reach the youth with the gospel, and to teach and train them to have a personal, daily relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal for our youth is for them to grow up to be balanced, well-rounded, consecrated Christian adults. We believe that it is our responsibility to pass on to the next generation the Bible truths and principles that were given to us. We want to instill in them the importance of walking with God, and living a life that is surrendered to His purposes. Annual summer camps, trips, and youth retreats are geared to help our young people re-focus their relationship with God, while at the same time allowing them to have a lot of fun!



Nursery (0-3 yrs)

At Lighthouse Baptist Church, we want to help children discover how much God loves them at an early age. Our children's ministry serves infants through 6th grade. We provide them with the wonderful opportunity to learn about God and His love while preparing them for the future through biblical principles. There is no minimum age requirement to when a child can start the beginning stages of spiritual growth. Our nurseries prepare children to learn about God by providing them with the proper love and care they deserve.


Junior Children (4 yrs - 6th grade)

Kids from age 4 to the 6th grade will be encouraged and challenged to develop their faith in God. Captivating stories will bring Bible characters to life, as fun-filled activities will make learning about and walking with God a fun and enjoyable experience. All children are strongly encouraged to interact with other children to help develop social skills and strong friendships.

   

Opportunities for Children


Junior Church Sundays at 11:00 AM

Not only are children taught the Bible in Sunday school, but they are challenged by a message in church brought right to the level of a child. Junior Church helps develop a child's character, which allows them to sit up and pay attention in church. Therefore, your child will listen so God may speak to his heart. Topics emphasized are respect for authority, gratitude, patriotism, and obedience to parents. Not only will your child learn and develop character, but he will also be challenged to be more like Christ, and have fun doing so.


BEKC (4 yrs - 6th grade) Wednesdays at 7:00 PM

Bible Explorers Kids Club (BEKC) lessons are designed to teach Christ-like character traits. Bible memorization is introduced and the children practice songs that are later performed for the church. It is never too early to start wanting to be the best Christian you can be! The only fee to become a club member is the written materials and club uniform items required to be a member of the Bible Explorers unit. Now that the children can read and write, more emphasis is placed on daily devotions, Bible reading, and establishing a close walk with God through the study of His word. Character traits and living a Christ-like life are taught through the Bible and nature. As Christian parents, we know the importance of a consistent walk with God. This is an easy, fun way to teach our children how to grow in grace and in favor with God and man.


Vacation Bible School

VBS is held during the month of July. The purpose of VBS is to stimulate growth and knowledge of the Word of God in a creative and child centered atmosphere. The participants are provided with the tools needed to increase their faith in Jesus Christ, and to develop a desire to be obedient to him in a fun setting.
"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14
